New Rochelle to Fix 21 Street Names

February 13, 2013 - 00:04

NEW ROCHELLE, NY -- The City Council of New Rochelle received a report tonight from Barry Nechis, the OEM/EMS Coordinator who discovered multiple streets with various spellings as recorded on the FD/PD Map, New Rochelle Assessors Portal, Street Sign, County 911, D.E.S. CAD, and the U.S.P.S. These discrepancies can create a nuisance for delivery services and a serious safety problem for Emergency Response personnel. A survey was thus created and sent to the property owners on the affected streets to get feedback on the preferred name.

Nechis, along with DPW Commissioner Alex Tergis, made recommendation on changing certain street names:

We recommend making the section of Van Guilder Ave, that remains between Guion Place and Division St an extension to Guion Place.

18. Baraud Road Baraud Road North and Baraud Road South

We recommend officially changing Baraud Road to Baraud Road North (from Wilmot Road Northward) and Baraud Road South (from Wilmot Road Southward).

19. Congress Street and Congress Place

We are recommending that the "dogleg" section that runs west off of Congress Street be renamed Congress Place. (This is for identification purposes only and does not obligate the City in any other format.)

20. Harbor Lane, Harbor Lane West, and Neptune Island Road

We recommend officially naming the section, West of the Glen Island approach road, Harbor Lane West

21. 200 Petersville Road & Fredrick B. Powers Square

We recommend that the Palmer Center is renumbered with a Palmer Avenue address, Petersville Road officially ends at Lynette Street and Powers Square be made a historical (no longer active) intersection.

I recommend that we change the name of Main St to "The Road to Nowhere"
